  • Lake house retreat


    We only had a short stay here as we were road tripping to other places but this was an awesome stop along the way. This is a home on the owners property separate from their house. It had everything we needed to feel like we were at home. It was quiet and peaceful. The waterfront is beautiful to walk down to. We met one of the owners, Marisol who was sweet and welcoming and we appreciated her hospitality. Would 10/10 recommend staying here for a quiet getaway that’s close to New Bern. This is the cleanest property I have ever stayed at!!! Thank you for having us.

  • Excellent 3 day weekend trip


    My wife and I took a long weekend trip away and had an excellent time. Kayaking on-site is fantastic, and the guest house has everything you need. The location is great; only ten minutes to downtown. Highly recommend and would love to come back and stay again.

  • Jewel of New Bern!


    You will fall in love with this guest cottage and with Marisol and Matt as well! First, the cottage was immaculate! It is the cutest, coziest vacation rental ever! You can tell immediately that a lot of love and thought went into preparing it for guests. I was happy to see a Keurig coffee maker and all the other things that make a well appointed kitchen. Shortly after arrival the kids were already off on kayaks exploring the river. So appreciative that lifejackets were supplied. There is great fishing right off the dock or you could do some kayak fishing like my son did and we cooked that nights catch on the grill!

    It was close to historic New Bern and there was much to see and enjoy! Don't miss out on the New Bern Trolley Tour. It was so nice getting the history of the homes and families of this adorable town! Can't say enough good things about our hosts, the cottage or New Bern! It was a short drive over to Emerald Isle Beach and the water was Caribbean blue the day we went. Ready to come back again!
